Change of Mailing Address for FOIA Requests

The Internal Revenue Service has almost completed modernizing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and Privacy Act case processing with the implementation of AFOIA, Automated Freedom of Information Act.

Due to the volume of correspondence and payments the IRS receives, they have changed the FOIA mailing address. Effective April 1, 2011, the new address for all FOIA correspondence and payments is:

Internal Revenue Service
Disclosure Scanning Operation – Stop 93A
Post Office Box 621506
Atlanta, GA 30362-3006

AFOIA allows the IRS to centralize receipt of requests and electronically process and distribute them throughout the country.
